  Nonviolent action has resulted in political change in recent history:  in the American South, in Gandhi’s India, and in South Africa, just a few examples.  Now the self-described “protectors” of Mauna Kea and Haleakalā are rallying around a call for “Kapu Aloha”, a nonviolent mode of conduct that organizers say guides their movement.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.

“Active resistance through love, the consistency of that has been proven in many world conflict. Here is another one.”

    Last April, social media buzzed as sign wavings for Mauna Kea “protectors” were held as far away as Kentucky and Tonga. With that first wave of publicity over, the “protectors” both on Mauna Kea and Haleakalā now say there's a guiding principal that keeps them going.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on Kapu Aloha.
